Other than eating freshly picked guava, I love to enjoy this tropical treat in a colorful fruit salad, in a morning shake or in my warm oatmeal. This time I decided to make one of my favorite and simplest desserts with guava: Panna cotta. Because of its creamy flavor, the sweet and tart guava topping is a great accompaniment. Since it is so rich, a small serving goes a long way. Serve it at you next dinner party following a heavy meal. Your guests will love every single sweet bite of this elegant dessert.
